CFP: Faith and Spirituality in Masters of World Cinema, Volume II (6/9/2010; collection)
The editor of Faith and Spirituality in Masters of World Cinema (Cambridge Scholars Press, 2008) seeks proposals for previously unpublished essays to appear in a second volume of this series.
Although proposals will be considered for essays dealing with any auteur not covered in the first volume,* the editor will give special attention to submissions dealing with the work of the following:
–Roy Andersson (Assigned)
–Michelangelo Antonioni (Assigned)
–Luis Buñuel (Assigned)
–Claire Denis (Assigned)
–Jean-Luc Godard (Assigned)
–Abbas Kiarastomi (Assigned)
–Akira Kurosawa (Assigned)
–Pier Paolo Pasolini (Assigned)
–Satyajit Ray (Assigned)
–Lars von Trier (Assigned)
Essays should demonstrate a familiarity with the reception history or critical dialogue surrounding the director(s) or film(s) in question, but they should avoid being openly derivative. The terms “faith” and “spirituality” are defined broadly for the purpose of judging suitability for inclusion within the volume. The average length of essays in the first volume was between 4,000 and 6,000 words, but length is flexible depending upon the subject of the essay and the number of submissions.
The deadline for proposals is August 1, 2010.
(DEADLINE EXTENDED! September 1, 2010)
In the case of accepted proposals, completed essays will be expected no later than December 15, 2010.
Electronic submissions are welcome.
